He can do a broad range of reads: "Warm" "Friendly" "Comforting" to "Dangerous" "Icey." He's a go-to voice for corporate imaging (and a sponsored voiceover artist for Mojave Audio) because of his knowledge of technical and business "language."

Trained professional musician: songwriting and composing, instrumentals, and voice.

Bass-baritone.

In addition to being a professional actor, he has been a professional musician since he was eleven years old - way back in the last century! (He played lead trombone in the band for The Ringling Brothers Circus' winter quarter shows in Florida, from (Phone hidden), and sang in various background groups in the mid '70's on "The Grand Old Opry")

He reads copy like it is a piece of music; by dynamic, tempo, "key" - and of course, nuance and mood.

His voice work also includes feature film and television re-voicing, loop group ADR, session singing as a soloist, and group singer.

He has extensive in-studio experience producing numerous projects for clients, including sound design, copywriting, original music, record and demo producing.

He has also read a number of Audiobook titles using his given name, and the pseudonym, "Ira Claffey."

Do a Google search with his real or pseudonym, and you'll end up knowing things about him he has probably forgotten.

I'm happy to wholeheartedly recommend Charles Kahlenberg as a superb voice over artist. I've known Charles for years and have always both enjoyed working with him as a person and been repeatedly blown away by his great talent.

Charles recently announced a spot that I created as our premiere launch spot for The Inspiration Network's new branding campaign. Charles hit it out of the park and gave us a great read that took our spot to a whole new level.

Needless to say, Charles is our

Client List

Generally, too numerous to list, but would include oodles of local, regional, and several Fortune 100, 200, and 500 companies for commercials in television and radio; industrial training videos, and corporate imaging videos.
In addition to my on-screen experience, I've done LOTS of film voice-over for major motion pictures, and many games.

Trivia lovers might like to know that one of those games was the original EA game package, "Medal of Honor: Allied Assault War Chest"
